I think we’re all aware that the isolation protocol (I think that’s what this would be called onboard the Enterprise) under which we are operating, has made photographing doors difficult. I have some door photos in reserve, but I’ve trying to obtain new ones. Today’s doors, as you might have already guessed are ones that I see while walking with Maddie. Several were taken when I had to move us off the sidewalk to avoid runners, joggers, cyclists, mail carriers and work crews from the local Public Works department. The work crews are the worst, when we see them, we have to alter our route.
Walking with Maddie is one of the “normal” things I can do. I do not need a mask. I do not need permission. There are time constraints, only because we try to avoid the walker lady. And Maddie is the perfect companion for maintaining an anti-social distance from all others.
As I write this, on Wednesday evening, the state of Connecticut has begun the first stage of “re-opening.” We are taking small steps, baby steps that will not materially impact my activity. I will still be limiting myself to shopping for groceries at a few stores, shopping for dairy products at our favorite farm and the occasional visit to the local hardware store. I do think that between now and next Thursday, I will venture out to take some pictures. With more things open, I feel less of a need to be “going somewhere.” If I chicken out, I still have those photos in reserve.
This post, like most every other post on Thursdays on this blog, is part of a fun weekly blogfest called Thursday Doors. Thursday Doors is organized and managed by Norm Frampton. Each week, Norm invites bloggers rom around the world to contribute photos of doors by preparing a blog post, such as this one, and share it through a link on his site. If you want to participate, or if you just want to see more doors, visit Norm’s site.
